    It's no wonder McCain is trying to distance himself from his own philosophy. Comparisons to Hoover aren't going to help him.

    1)There is no such thing as an unofficial recession. We are either in one or not. According to the numbers at this time, we are not. That doesnt mean we wont soon. We just arent now.

    2)McCain has nothing to do with this.

    No? If not personally, he does by his political philosophy, which was my point.

    Maybe they'll call them "GOPvilles" or "Bushvilles"?

    Re 1) - I think, not sure, that you only know you are in a recession when you're well into it and have the statistics to prove it.

    What's in a name?

    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

    We know he's innocent, but the question is: What exactly is he innocent of?

    Recession? Nah... just the collapse of our economic system.

    You mean, McCain personally, or the banking industry types he's been in bed with since Keating and who are running his campaign?

    He sounds pretty pathetic blaming Obama for HIS policies. He's still saying that LESS oversight, not more, is the answer.
